List of Livestreams for Watching the #SolarEclipse from Afar

If you can’t get to a location in the United States where the total #SolarEclipse will be viewable from, you can still watch the happening online! Lifehacker have a wonderful round-up of livestream sites, provided by everyone from NASA to Astronomy.com and yes, even in VR!

There’s a total solar eclipse happening on August 21, 2017, and for the first time in nearly a hundred years, the Moon’s unabashed Sun-blocking power will be visible from much of the continental U.S. (though certain locations will of course have a better vantage point than others). Warning: don’t look directly at it with your naked eyes—instead, use certified eclipse glasses or the pinhole method described here.

In the U.S., the eclipse will appear to move across the country from West to East, with the best view starting around 9:05 a.m. PDT in Lincoln Beach, Oregon, according to NASA, and moving southeast throughout the day to end around Charleston, South Carolina at 2:48 p.m EDT (enter your location here to find what time to look up).

But what if you are stuck in work that whole time, or something else is keeping you inside? Don’t worry, the internet has your back.
